We have an Nikon Camera and when I plug it into a usb port, it shows up as a Nikon camera on the usb port. However, it does not map a drive to f: as it should. The camera does work on other pc's, it does show up as a mass storage device. It does not on the pc I need it to work on. I am running windows xp with sp2. Other devices, Blackberry for example, work fine. I was told by Nikon that I do not need a driver to download for this. Also, I think PTP would work as a workaround, but I would like to get it to work as it did. It did work 2 weeks ago.

check to make sure your system is using usb 2.0 and not 1.1, the nikon drivers or card would not be reconized under 1.1, you may have to purchase a pci usb hub and intall to your mobo to get the usb 2.0 functionality. or you can use a usb multi card reader and just pull the card out of the camera and use it externally. hope that helps

check disk management.  go to my computer, right click, select manage, click on disk management.  see if the camera is listed there and if it is assign it a drive letter.
